  • 1/4 cup carrot, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons red onion, minced

  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (one lime)

Squeeze extra water from tofu, then mash tofu with a fork. Combine tofu, carrot, garlic, onion and cilantro in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, blend until smooth peanut butter, lime zest, cayenne pepper, lime juice and tamari. Fold into tofu mixture. Adjust seasonings to taste.
